One of the biggest hurdles for our club to overcome in a geographically-large state like Wisconsin is that often some of our members are far-flung and unable to be more active participants. We’ve remedied this by offering frequent conference calls to discuss political matters with leaders within CPUSA and elsewhere. Still though, there’s nothing like being able to meet with others face-to-face and build unity with the other members of CPUSA.
The newly-launched CPWisconsin.org is only the first stage in a planned expansion of our online presence – the next being the personally anticipated CP-Wisconsin Connect. We like to describe Connect as a “meeting place” for all of our current members – an easy-to-navigate forum that encourages discussion and action. This new free-to-use service will be available to CPUSA members only and allows us to expand on dialogues started at our club meetings in Madison and Milwaukee.
Down the road, we plan to implement both live video presentations of club meetings as well as an entirely online-conducted meeting for those who are unable to make it to either the Madison or Milwaukee dates.
We are aiming to have CP-Wisconsin Connect’s forums up and running by the beginning of April 2013. The online video meetings are slated to begin by Summer of this year, so please stay tuned to CPWisconsin.org for further updates.
